Search for planning applications and decisions

The ePlanning facility allows you to search for, inspect, and make comment on planning applications dating back to 2008. Confidential documents are not available to view. You can search for applications by reference number, address, or by using the map. You will also be able to view any decision notices issued for the application.

The council has produced a guide on how to use the ePlanning facility for those who may want a more detailed overview of the functions held within it.
